BD FACS Canto Flow Cytometer

  • Two lasers for 6-colour analysis
  • Cellular metabolism studies
  • DNA analysis/ploidy/karyotyping
  • Cytotoxicity studies
Product Description

The FACS Canto Flow Cytometer has two lasers an air cooled 20mW solid state blue laser which excites at 488nm.

The other is a 17mW HeNe red laser which excites at 633nm which allows for 6-colour analysis.

Currently the FACS Canto Flow Cytometer can detect the following blue laser fluorescent dyes:

  • FITC (525nm)
  • PE (575nm)
  • PerCP (678nm) or PerCP-Cy5.5 (695nm) and PE-Cy7(785nm).
The red laser dyes the FACS Canto Flow Cytometer can detect are APC (660nm) and APC-Cy7 (785nm). Together with 2 light scatter detectors this cytometer is the latest cutting edge technology that makes 8-parameter analysis a breeze.
  • Cellular metabolism studies: including changes in intracellular calcium levels cellular pH and changes in membrane potential
  • DNA analysis/ploidy/karyotyping: Studies of changes in DNA/RNA levels using DNA-binding dyes such as Ethidium bromide.
  • Cytotoxicity studies: including studies of Natural killer cell activity and Cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) activity.
